5.0 out of 5 stars A Sting in the Tale, 2 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Note: Volume 3 (Paperback)
After a slightly lacklustre second volume (being only an extension of the Vol. 1, but without the excitement of discovering the series' excellent premise), 'Death Note Volume 3' is back on a par with the series' awesome opener. 'L' and Kira continue their game of 'cat and mouse', playing for the highest of stakes.

Failing to flush Kira out, using surveillance technology, 'L' resorts to a carefully orchestrated face-to-face meeting, during which he tries to lure Light Yagami into revealing that he is indeed Kira. This is tense stuff, with little action and lots of fascinating dialogue between these two towering intellects, as they attempt to draw one another out. With honours roughly equal, the novel enters an intriguing third phase with Kira stepping up his reign of terror.

This final section is as exciting as anything that had come before (in all three volumes), and has a unforeseen (by me anyway) conclusion. There is a slightly preposterous twist, which works at least in the short term, but feels a little like its inclusion may in order to spin out the series (much like watching 'Lost' or 'Heroes'). I sincerely hope not, but only by reading further will I find out. For now, I'm hooked, and looking forward to the 4th instalment!
